X Factor judge cuddles up to Rocky

Nicole Scherzinger appears to have found love again.

The singer, who split from Lewis Hamilton over the summer, has fallen head over heels for one of Sharon Osbourne‘s adorable pet dogs.

Nicole, 35, has shared a cute picture on Instagram showing her cuddling up to fluffy pup Rocky and confessed that she’s become very attached.

ME & MY NEW MAN! #Rocky #Osbournebaby :),‘ the X Factor judge captions the snap.

Rocky‘s not the only one Nicole‘s been getting cosy with – she was snapped lovingly embracing his mum Sharon, 61, after going for dinner with the judges on Sunday night.

Nicole – looking stunning in a sexy satin gown – hugged and kissed Sharon as they left Mr Chow restaurant in London.

The former Pussycat Doll giggled and seemed in high spirits, despite seeing her act Hannah Barrett get eliminated from The X Factor earlier that night.
